    BTL #294 - BRENT’S RETURN - 8/6/18

     

    In Which We Discuss:

    *Brent is back! Yay!*

    1. The Trump White House is the only place in government where quitting means staying put

    2. Rev up your car elevator and head to your nearest stockbroker! More tax breaks are on the way.

    3. Don Jr. is definitely innocent of not having a meeting about adoptions with Russian officials. That much we know.

    4. Donald Trump doesn’t need an invite to your stupid GOP rally. Also he doesn’t know who you are or what district he’s currently standing in.

    5. Jeff Sessions is stopping injustice in its tracks, one secularist at a time

    6. The judge in the Manafort trial is hungry for justice...and Baked Alaska
